Having not lost a match since January, Belinda Bencic might've scored her biggest win yet on Tuesday in Indian Wells.

Naomi Osaka continued the defence of her BNP Paribas Open crown at Indian Wells with a straight-sets victory over Danielle Collins.

Tuesday in the 8th finals, against Swiss Belinda Bencic (22, 23rd in the world) Naomi was unable to worry Belinda, who won in 2 sets [6-3, 6-1] eliminating Naomi from Indian Wells Tournament "It's a little tough compared the look of the game, but I'm really happy", said Belinda Bencic after the match, adding, "Naomi, she's number one and she's nearly everything gained in recent months". "But honestly, I think at a time like this with that scoreline, I would usually feel very depressed and sad".

Earlier in the day, Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova ran Halep ragged before dumping the Romanian out of the tournament 6-2 3-6 6-2.

The 23rd seed, who beat Russian Ekaterina Alexandrova 6-4, 6-2, appears to have solved her problems after stunning two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova in Dubai last month to capture her first WTA title in four years. "I mean, she's the number one player in the world".

"It's always a bit tricky whenever you change someone in the team, but I feel like for a first tournament we did really well", she said of Jenkins, who served as a hitting partner to Venus Williams from 2015 until the end of last season. Halep got injured during the match and received treatment for blisters on her foot.

"In the first set I was just really flat-footed".

The 21-year-old Japanese had a shaky start when she was broken early in the first set but quickly found her groove and broke the American four times and struck 29 winners to advance.

The win was 19-year-old Vondrousova's first over a top-10 player in six attempts.

"I liked my chances more at night against Kohlschreiber, but it wasn't to be last night", Djokovic said.

Ukrainian Elina Svitolina came from a break down in the third set to defeat Australian Ashleigh Barty 7-6 (8) 5-7 6-4 to reach the quarter-finals for the first time.

That set the tone for Bencic, who was in impeccable form as she broke again for a commanding 4-1 lead against the two-time grand slam victor. Williams will fight for a semi-final berth against eighth-seeded Angelique Kerber, who beat ninth-seeded Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus 6-1, 4-6, 6-4.
